Nail fungus is difficult to eradicate because the fungus grows under the nail plate in the nail bed. Topical medications have a very low success rate in treating this condition. Oral drug therapy is effective in about 65-70 percent of patients. However, there are potential side effects from the medication, including liver toxicity. Laser therapy is safe and effective.
Do your toenails appear yellow, brittle or thickened?
Then perhaps you suffer from a toenail infection, a condition that will continue to worsen over time if measures are not taken to stop the infection. Pain in your toenails might be an end result. Toenail infections can be caused by heavy foot perspiration, poor shoe/sock ventilation or walking barefoot in damp areas such as a gym or locker room. Until now, the only solutions for unsightly toenail infections were to surgically remove the nail and apply topical treatments, which have a known poor success rate; or more recently, prescription medications, which have many potentially dangerous side effects and require blood tests.
Lasers are the latest treatment for your ugly unsightly toenail infections.
The Q-ClearTM laser treatment can effectively and efficiently rid you of ugly unsightly toenail infections in as little as one treatment, depending on the severity of the condition. The mid-infrared laser wavelength penetrates the nail and the nail bed, eliminating the destructive nasty infection thus allowing your own body to revitalize your own nail naturally as it grows out clean clear and healthy.
Never a need for needles or local anesthetic with the Q-Clear painless laser procedure
Your toenails will be cleaned and filed prior to the laser treatment. As each toe is treated with the painless laser you might at most feel a mild, warming sensation, most people feel absolutely nothing.
The laser treatment will take under 10 minutes to treat both feet and there is usually no discomfort during or after the treatment. Your physician will discuss post-treatment care to avoid unsightly unwanted re-infections.
You will notice results within 2-4 months, depending on how quickly your toenails grow. New, clear growth begins to appear at the bottom portion of your nail as the diseased portion of the nail grows out.
You may return to your normal daily routine immediately after your toenail treatment, including painting your nails or pedicure treatments. Go enjoy the outdoors, play sports, exercise or just enjoy yourself. It's time you can finally relax and not be self conscious.
